The Prince of Wales’ Gloucestershire mansion reportedly has excellent security. However, Charles and Camilla are believed to have a secret panic room at Highgrove in case of any emergency situations.
According to Gloucestershire Live, some security experts have said that the room is so strong that if the house was targeted in an air strike or terrorist attack, those inside it would survive.
Royal author Brian Hoey spoke about the room in his book ‘Not in Front of the Corgis’.
He described the “iron room” as measuring 20ft by 20ft.
Mr Hoey added how the room “has been so built that even if the rest of the house is destroyed, it will drop intact to the ground floor”.
He continued: “Inside are medical supplies, including containers of Charles and Camilla’s blood group, long-lasting food and drinks, an armoury, radio transmitters equipped to obtain a signal even within its steel walls, air purifiers and chemical lavatories.”

She explained how Mr Stewart got locked in after excusing himself to use the bathroom.
Mr Stewart could not be heard shouting for help but Charles found him and is said to have laughed about the situation.
Ms Seward said: “Rory Stewart had tutored Prince William and Prince Harry and he became a great friend of Prince Charles.
“He was staying at Highgrove one weekend and inadvertently went into a bathroom.
“He couldn’t get out, the room was armour-plated. He had to call and shout and then Prince Charles came down in his dressing-gown.
“They eventually got Rory Stewart out with much laughter, Prince Charles took it very well and he thought it was very funny.”
